Belmont Hill junior defenseman Michael Brown has committed to playing college hockey at Merrimack.
Brown is new head coach Scott Borek’s first local recruit since taking over the Merrimack program in April, all after Mark Dennehy was let go. The Belmont, Mass., native said he chose the Warriors due to a connection with the coaching staff, proximity to home, and playing in a premier college hockey conference.
“I chose Merrimack because the coaching staff was very welcoming to me and really exaggerated on how they could help me improve to be the best player I can be,” Brown explained. “I love the location. It’s close to home and my life long dream growing up was to play in Hockey East.”
